Are the Chicago Bears' building blocks coming together?
The Chicago Bears made two big splashes recently, and they could become cornerstone pieces to the roster. The Bears traded for DJ Moore this offseason, and he has been everything the Bears have wanted. He put up 96 yards on seven catches for a touchdown against the Detroit Lions.
Moore is averaging over 100 yards per game when Justin Fields is the starter, and he was keeping the offense afloat when Tyson Bagent started. The Bears have him signed for the next couple of years, but they may even try to extend him and add a few more on.
The team just extended Montez Sweat, and it looks like it is working out. Sweat had a 10.6% pass rush win rate over the first eight weeks of the season. He had 27 pressures and 6.5 sacks, a 7.7 productivity score. It is only three games, but he has a 10.8% win rate for the Bears.
With one sack and 11 pressures and one sack, Sweat has a productivity score of 7.2. He is about right in line with expectations. He has also faced some tough right tackles to start his time in Chicago.
Ryan Poles has done a few things wrong, but Moore and Sweat look like stable pieces and good additions.
